DC Universe Online hitting PSN 'soon'

Sony says superhero MMO will be available as a $60 digital download via virtual marketplace in the near future; firm release date not offered.


In January, DC Universe Online--Sony's PlayStation 3 and PC superhero massively multiplayer online role-playing game--became Sony Online Entertainment's fastest selling game of all time. The game is currently available at retail for both platforms and as a digital download on PC. However, the title will soon be available in another location.

According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, DC Universe Online for the PS3 will be available as a full-game download via the PlayStation Network sometime "soon." Unfortunately, Sony did not provide a specific release date.

When it does arrive, DC Universe Online will sell for $60 and come bundled with 30 days of free gameplay. After the grace period, players must pay $15 a month to continue trekking through the game's world. However, players looking to stick around for a while can save a few dollars by purchasing a six-month pass for $78 or a 12-month pass for $135.

DC Universe Online lets players create their crime fighter or villain and is set in such locales as Superman's Metropolis and Batman's Gotham City. Also, a range of heroes and villains from the comic book publisher's immense stable lend their presence to the game. The game also benefits from heralded comic artist Jim Lee and scribe Marv Wolfman, who contributed to the project.
